Employees Must Wash Hands

Am I the only one neurotic enough to be turned off when I see those signs in restaurant bathrooms stating that employees must wash their hands before returning to work? The last thing I want to be reminded of as I fumble for the door knob with my hand wrapped in thick paper towels, is that the short-order cook makes his way in and out of this filthy place several times per day between shifts of handling the raw tomatoes and onions.

As a germ-phobic customer who’s about to eat here, what I really want to see is:

“Employees must sanitize hands using the sterile sink that is not separated from the kitchen by several feces-laden doorknobs.”

What’s worse is when these signs are up, but soap and paper towels are absent. Nice move, restaurant. This means:

“Employees must take a shit, lightly rinse their hands with water, dry their hands by wiping on their washed-weekly work pants, and touch the feces-laden door knob before returning to work.”

Who’s hungry for take-out?

    I don\’t think I\’ve ever seen it that bad, but I can also say that I never thought about the doorknob and kitchen workers before.I know in McDonald\’s now they have sanitizing gel dispensers that all employees have to use at least once per hour. As soon as I saw that I was wishing all restaurants would move to that.
